The Return To Golf® program helps physically disabled adults and children improve balance, coordination, muscle strength and, most importantly, self-esteem through the creative combination of rehabilitation-based golf fitness and recreational therapy.
The program provides innovative programming, free of charge, to more than 200 participants annually. Participants represented a broad range of physical disabilities, including stroke survivors, amputees, traumatic brain injuries, visual impairment, multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy.
Individual and group programming sessions are conducted year round (45 weeks per year) on the campus of the Wharton Golf Center at North Olmsted Golf Club, which includes an on-site fitness center and indoor golf range.
Under the supervision of our team of PGA golf professionals and fitness-oriented physical therapists, in addition to support staff from the Cleveland Clinic's Rehabilitation and Sports Therapy department, participants in the Return To Golf® program receive personalized golf fitness services designed to improve balance, coordination, flexibility and mobility.
